The Stripers Are Coming!
Every winter, anticipation builds for the arrival of migrating striped bass. Each year is different, and exact timing seems to be strongly influenced by water temperatures along the Atlantic coast.
By tracking fishing reports from charter captains, contributors, and readers at OnTheWater.com, we have been mapping the striped bass spring migration from the Mid-Atlantic to Maine since 2015. Each year has been very different and provided some interesting insight into the timing of the striper migration.
Here’s how the striped bass migration played out in 2020. With the mild weather we’re enjoying so far in March, we might see the striped bass migration get moving a little sooner in 2021.
